absolutely zero

Even though this is absolutely trivial information, I feel no guilt or shame in posting it on my absolutely trivial blog.
So the other day someone sent me a link to a youtube video of John Mayer talking about something or other on stage, and one of my dear home members is looking over my shoulder and says "He kinda talks like you."
Being the hardcore John Mayer fan that I am, I snigger at his beautiful compliment and modestly sing the praises of the splendid Systemite. But after another video, my dear home member shakes his head and says "Yeah. He's totally like you. No wonder why you like him. Libras have this weird magnetic beamer that searches out like minds to make babies with."
So just to redeem John Mayer from this filthy insult, I run an internet search on him, and in the process totally and completely lose this argument by coming across this little bit of information.
John Mayer is a Libra!!!
Okay, okay, so...
We rented the Holiday last night, Mom, Dad, Mach and I. It's that somewhat predictable but sweet love story with Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black and Kate Winslet.
There are these scenes where Kate Winslet goes to her new house and starts freaking out and jumping around in happiness all by herself running around exploring everything. And it struck me that that's exactly the sort of thing I always shamelessly do. Mach even comments like "Oh my God, she acts like you, Florence."
Having learned from my mistakes, I run a little internet search before defending myself, and lo and behold--Kate Winslet is also a Libra.
So weird. It's like the time when I was a major 13 year old Avril Lavigne fan (I think the average age of most of her fans) and found out that I had the same birthday as her.
I guess this also explains the reason why I've always wanted to make babies with Simon Cowell. And Sting. And Eminem. And Clive Owen. And Matt Damon. I even found a portion of a long and boring explanation about sun signs that talked about how Libras actually are really attracted to people that they understand. Apparently, Libras, more than other signs, cannot like or even get along very well with people that they don't understand. They can't agree to disagree. They love people they identify with. Weird.
I guess this is that time for me to get up and pace as I remorse the time I wrote a blog post that made me sound like I cared about this sort of thing.

Thanks Flo, you do make us sound cold & heartless. But I guess it's true, my mind draws a complete blank "emo-wise" for those sweet people who make no sence to me!

Cold and heartless? Hardly. Beautiful and full of life. Witty, clever, etc.
Oh Al, it's so easy to compliment you. Maybe because I'm indirectly complimenting myself. Ho ho ho!

I was just talking about this with someone.libra girls and guys are very different, but at the same time you find similarities,
of course like any sign I suppose.
I think libra girls are sexy, because theyre the kinds of people that would say "you like sex, I like sex, lets have sex".
niiiiiiice.

Yeah but I can't lie, I've never really wanted to copulate with John Lennon. As brilliant as he is.
Hahahahahaha. I don't know what to think about your interesting theory. It makes us sound...almost vulgar. So let me just say...
Let's have sex.

Hey wow!

SO I'm a little confused.

You want to copulate with me?

Or you could just compliment me.

Hey also, I've never said "you like sex, I like sex, lets have sex"

But it's all I ever think about.

Does that count?

Ooh, ouch, I do somewhat recognize this trait, but in defense of some better Libras than I, I'd hv to say that this is quite possibly what drives them to want to understand & figure out what makes ppl tick & why.
